Anchor UWB ATEX

CREATES HIGH-PERFORMANCE AND RELIABLE LOCALIZATION INFRASTRUCTURES ALSO IN AT-RISK OF EXPLOSION USED AREAS.

GENERAL OVERVIEW

The device is the 3D spatial reference node (with a known position) of the Smart Network and is responsible for receiving information from tags worn by people, or positioned on objects and assets in at-risk environments (Oil & Gas, Chemical, etc.).

 

MAIN ADVANTAGES

  • Lightweight and easy to install – the low weight, the small size and the long battery power supply make it easy to install in any context without the need for wiring, ensuring time and installation cost savings. The Anchor is generally fixed on the walls that define the perimeter of the area to be monitored and placed in a high position, to cover the maximum extension and avoid any obstacles that could block the signal.
  • Suitable for any scenario – The device is designed to be used in outdoor environments (IP66 degree of protection) and indoor, and does not require additional protections, being made of resistant and durable self-extinguishing plastic material. It is also ATEX certified for use in explosive atmospheres.

OPERATING PRINCIPLES

COMUNICAZIONE: SMART NETWORK PROTOCOL

The UWB Anchors communicate with the Filippetti Group’s Gateways (or Routers) using the proprietary Smart Network and wireless UHF protocol and in LoRa/Fsk modulation.

LOCALIZATION: UWB

The system is part of the Ultra-Wide Band (UWB) tracking infrastructure, and makes it possible to measure the distance with compatible devices (e.g. SaveMENOW), through the precise flight time (Time of Flight – ToF) of the radio signals, in unicast mode. Through the trilateration (i.e. with three or more distances detected by as many devices), it is possible to calculate with sub-precision accuracy (≈ 50cm) the position of the SaveMENOW tag or the PPE connected to the tags. The data exchanged between the anchors and the mobile tags are sent to the RTLS server (Real-Time Locating System) to estimate the position.

POWER SUPPLY: by BATTERY

The device is supplied with 4 batteries (each of type D, nominal voltage of 3.6V, from 19 Ah), which guarantee an average life span from 1 (1 tracking per second) to 7 years (1 tracking every 15 seconds).
